Dear BASS2010 visitors,
Dear participants, sponsors, supporters, concertgoers,
Dear competition participants, sound engineers and helpers,
A huge thank-you goes out to all of you who attended BASS2010 in Berlin! The event was attended by over 1,000 visitors and therefore an outstanding success. Participants and visitors praised the first-rate concerts, the variety of supporters from within the double bass scene, the smooth running of the convention, the competent and friendly BASS2010 Team, the high level of playing displayed by competition participants, interesting presentations, informative master classes and the diverse program on offer.
We were lucky enough to meet, listen to and chat with top-class double bassists and international guests from over 30 countries. A lively exchange of ideas between bassists of different genres and age groups took place. In short BASS2010, held in Germany’s capital city, Berlin, was an extremely successful convention for participants from all over the world, young and old alike.
At this point we would like to again thank our sponsors for their financial support. Without them, BASS2010 would not have been possible:
Thomastik, bassico, Universität der Künste Berlin, Björn Stoll, Thomas and George Martin, Pirastro, Jazz-Institut Berlin, Corelli, D´Addario, Horst Grünert, Jakob Motter, Salans, Schertler, Stefan Johann Krattenmacher, Daniel J. Kress, Swen Mentec, Saier Verlag.
Should you have any questions after the convention, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wish you all the best for the future and are looking forward to the next double bass convention BASS2012!
Stefan Nestler and Prof. Stephan Petzold
